H igh-temperature (HT) oxidation plays a significant role in various stages of the steelmaking process, including hot rolling. When exposed to high temperatures and oxygen partial pressure, the steel composition near the surface can be altered as alloying elements deplete. Additionally, the characteristics of the oxide scale, such as thickness...

To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

Steel is a widely used material in construction because of its availability, high strength-to-weight ratio, and recyclability. However, steel manufacturing consumes a lot of energy, and there is an increasing demand for more environmentally friendly building materials. Consequently, high-strength steel is becoming more popular as it reduces the...

The production reality of sheet steels from casting to the end product is such that in the cases of ultra- and advanced high-strength steels, we have to deal with the segregation of elements on macro- and microlevels. Both can have a significant impact on the microstructure formation and resulting properties. There are several production stages...

Debonding is characterized as the governing failure mode in the innovative wrapped composite joints made with glass fiber composite material wrapped around steel hollow sections without welding. The prerequisite for predicting debonding failure of wrapped composite joints is to obtain fracture behavior of the composite-steel bonded interface....

Earthquake-triggered fire domino scenarios (E-FDSs) arise frequently from the interaction between earthquakes and chemical installations, resulting in catastrophic multi-hazard coupling events. The complicated mutually amplified phenomena between natural disasters and chemical accidents significantly aggravates the escalation of domino...

This paper presents the development, implementation, and validation of a macro-element suitable for the linear analysis of innovative 3D plug-and-play joints between tubular columns and lightweight steel truss-girders. The macro-element is based on the component method, accounts for the three-dimensional interaction between the tube faces,...

An oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) steel with nominal composition Fe–14Cr–2W–0.4Ti–0.3Y<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> (wt%) has been manufactured by mechanical alloying of pre-alloyed powders with nanosized Y<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>, compacted by hot isostatic pressing and hot cross rolled. In order to evaluate the long-term thermal...

This paper presents the flexural cyclic behavior of I-shaped hot rolled steel deep sections used as beams in moment-resisting frames (MRF) featuring a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) patch on the web through advanced finite element analysis. The main goal of the CFRP reinforcement is to increase the rotation capacity of the member...

VDL Weweler has developed a novel heat treatment approach for their trailing arms, which eliminates the traditional austenisation step and instead capitalises on the inherent heat used for hot-forming to austenise the steel before quenching. This not only saves energy, but surprisingly also improves the lifetime of the products. The underlying...

The current understanding of auxetic metamaterials in structural engineering applications is limited. Auxetic materials exhibit lateral contraction under compressive loads, possessing a negative Poisson's ratio. The research addresses this gap, focusing on the use of auxetics for steel reinforcement in structural concrete elements to enhance...

To mitigate global warming, society must reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The transportation sector is one of the largest energy consumers and greenhouse gas emitters. One way to mitigate the emissions of this sector is to reduce the weight of vehicles using Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS), particularly dual phase steels (DP). However,...

Over the past few decades, the Netherlands has built numerous steel railway bridges to improve its infrastructure. The repeated loading from railway traffic makes steel bridges susceptible to fatigue damage. The stress ranges at fatigue-prone locations are generally higher in railway bridges than in road traffic bridges. Due to the limited space...

Corporations’ economic activities put significant stress on the environment. In order to limit global warming to 1.5°C, companies need to significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. However, shifting the responsibility of decarbonisation from being solely on governments to being shared with these companies is only a recent phenomenon....

Bainite steels are in high demand in many application areas owing to their outstanding mechanical properties, mainly due to the presence of a combination of fine bainite plates and retained austenite. Understanding the complicated mechanism of bainite transformation is crucial to creating an optimum design. Researchers have addressed this...

The presence of retained austenite (RA) has been proven beneficial for the formability of Advanced High Strength Steels. Therefore, multiple thermal austenite stabilization methods have been researched, such as Mn-partitioning during intercritical annealing in medium Mn steels. The Cyclic Partial Phase Transformation (CPPT) approach has been...

A multi-material structure combines diverse materials, allowing for precise tailoring of properties in specific regions. The integration of dissimilar materials leads to superior performance compared to single-material components. Bimetallic structures, a subset of multi-material systems, offer site-specific performance owing to the contrasting...

To stick to climate change targets and reduce global carbon emissions, the building sector needs to adopt a circular economy. In the steel sector, reuse or elements can reduce carbon emissions which are created in today's steel scrap recycling practices. This thesis contributes to closing the knowledge gap on design, costs, and environmental...
